MOTHERBOARD K8N-E DELUXE



This Athlon 64, nForce 3 motherboard distinguished itself from other solutions of the same platform by adopting the best features to date. Just name it: 8-channel audio, 6 Serial ATA, intelligent features for BIOS and audio setup, and a full lineup of unique and innovative designs.
The AMD Athlon 64 processor is based on AMD64 technology, which represents the landmark introduction of the industry's first x86-64 technology. This next-generation processor provides a dramatic leap forward in compatibility, performance, investment protection, and reduced total cost of ownership and development. AMD Cool 'n' Quiet technology enables processor frequency and voltage switching to reduce power and fan speed.

K8N-E Deluxe integrates 6 Serial ATA ports for your storage needs. Serial A TA is the next generation ATA specification that provides scalable performance for today and tomorrow. With up to 150MB/s data transfer rate, Serial ATA is faster than current Parallel ATA, while providing 100% software compatibility.

The nForce3 250Gb chipset incorporated two Serial ATA and two parallel connectors with RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1 and JBOD functions while the Silicon Image controller provides another four Serial ATA connectors for RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 10, RAID 5, and JBOD functions. The K8N-E Deluxe is the ideal solution to enhance hard disk performance and data back up protection without the cost of add-on cards.
